Class Activities

Raven's Quest students participated in numerous class activities over the summer, ranging from group games to research papers. Students worked to further develop writing and critical thinking skills, improve public speaking and presentation confidence, and learn about Excel, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and APA style. Raven's Quest provides a chance for students to learn new things and challenge ideas in a fun, safe, and nurturing environment.
